Free clinic for any and all ages before upcoming UNC Home Dual, This Friday night 4:45pm--5:45pm at Memorial Gymnasium UVA Grounds

Dear friends of wrestling,

My staff and I have decided to help put on a free clinic (technical based instruction only) for any and all age groups prior to our big home dual this Friday night against UNC-Chapel Hill. This dual meet will feature some of the best wrestlers in the nation on both sides of the mat. It should be a heck of a lot of fun and we thought we could add a bit of community service to all those who are available. We would love to have your child come and learn and be a part of this clinic. Here are the details:

Date: Friday, January 19th 
Time: 4:45pm—5;45pm
What: Technique only clinic (no live wrestling)
Cost: It is free and open to any and all ages. Bring everyone!
What to bring: Essentially, you just need t-shirt and shorts and hopefully wrestling shoes..:). Nothing special needed. 
Who: Headlining our clinic will be Head Coach Steve Garland and NCAA All American Eddie Klimara 
**We will be providing some pop and pizza to the kids after the clinic free of charge. 

Again, I really hope you can make it out and please do spread the word.
